Blocks for Susan and Mary

I was a bit behind from the month of July, so I didn't get Susan's block done until this week. I love her idea so very much (and now am drooling over the thought of making one of these myself!) and then I had a hard time narrowing down the star and the color combinations because I kept being bombarded by more and more ideas. It is called "Mama's Memories" and it was designed by Judy Martin (but Elizabeth, you may rename it whatever you would like....)

I had fun with Mary's blocks too. I delved into my very small stash of repro prints and added them to my very large stash of Kona in shades of pale pink. I must have had some plan for all those yards of pale pink, but I didn't write it down, so naturally that plan escapes me at this point.

It will be fun to watch the progress of these two quilts.

  1. Ha ha on the renaming joke, Cindy. I did laugh. (I put all of Famous Quilter's quilt books down in my dead files in the garage, so I won't be tempted to make any of her designs. For the rest of you, click on her "rename" link to get the whole story.)

    I love the use of that acid green in there to really make that square pop--well done. And bravo for you for getting up the squares that Mary requested. I need to do that!
